almost $2 billion in appropriations and putting the u.s. taxpayer on the hook for another $40 billion in potential liabilities. mr. secretary, this committee never consented to these increases, authorization bills are needed for each bank spelling out specific forms and possibility withholding funds until forms are met. i can't support writing blank checks to the institutions. capital increases will be extremely difficult to justify without convincing evidence that the taxpayer dollars will be used in a more effective and transparent manner than they have been used in the past. mr. secretary, i predict the subcommittee will face difficult choices. we'll have to look at each request to determine what is critical to our national security. we must prioritize spending by looking at what works, what is good oversight, and what is not duplicated elsewhere. i urge you to approach the subcommittee with your request in that context today and as the year progresses. finally, i want to mention the unique role the treasury department plays in u.s. foreign policy. your work to administer sanctions
